Pineapple Progress Day 5

So far the Pineapples are looking good! Both pineapples were planted in an organic potting soil for fruits and vegetables in containers, and watered thoroughly every day. Notice the outer leaves in the below picture are turning brown. However, in the next picture you will see new growth on the inside of the leaves. This is an excellent sign. Once the outer leaves turn completely brown, I will cut those off so the plant is not sending nutrients to those pieces.

Now, I am showing pictures of 2 other older pineapple heads I planted, and I dipped one in Clone-X cloning gel, and the other I mixed 1 teaspoon of Mycorrhiza into the top layer of soil. The one with the Clone-X seems to be growing inner leaves better then the other. They were both planted in the same soil as the first 2. I will have to not be so hard on these 2 pineapples, however because they were looking pretty drab when I planted them, so I am simply experimenting with these.

Even though it is old, the Clone-X Pineapple is still growing new leaves!

The Mycorrhiza Pineapple is not doing as well. Slow new growth is turning brown.
